Teaching English Conversation to Amazing Students

What is the best part of our senior mission?  The people - absolutely!  They are such an amazing delight.  Whether we are working with them one-on-one in Gospel discussions, teaching English conversation, sharing self reliance workshops, or just having fun with them - the people here are refreshingly open, teachable and very loving.  

We teach free English conversation sessions twice a week - one night in the District 6 Branch and one night in the Tan Son Nhat Branch. All missionaries share in this opportunity in Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced levels.  Elder Coffey and I lead the Advanced levels, and are grateful to mentors who assist us in the classroom!

One of our students made a video of our last class - you'll get a good feel of what it's like to interact with these amazing students! Click here - English Class.

At the conclusion of the hour long free English class, we share a 15 minute spiritual message to those who are willing to stay and listen.  No one ever leaves.  The Spirit is strong during those messages and sometimes we see those who are being touched by the power of God as they hear, sometimes for the first time in their lives, of a God who loves them and cares for them.
